Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality, gaining rapid acceptance in the market. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.

"The ANSYS solutions are tailored to customers’ specific requirements in each phase of the product development process, from initial product design and conceptualization, to detailed engineering and final product verification," said Frost & Sullivan Consultant Imran Khan. "These simulation solutions not only accelerate the product development process, but also eliminate costly prototype makeovers."

ANSYS’s broad array of simulation solutions, including computational fluid dynamics, structural analysis, electronics, systems engineering and embedded software, are designed to resolve product integrity and innovation challenges early in the product conceptualization stage. While simulation once was used largely during the testing and validation phases, ANSYS’ advanced solutions ensure better iterations earlier in development.

ANSYS’s vast simulation product portfolio provides customers with an effective one-stop shop for all of their simulation software needs. It leads its peers in high-performance computing and helps companies plan, align and consolidate their IT tools effectively, in the process reducing their software licensing and training costs.

The company serves the needs of a diverse range of industries, including aerospace & defense, automotive, consumer products, energy, healthcare, chemicals & materials processing, and industrial machinery segments. More important, ANSYS has uniform focus across all major discrete industries, as well as the regions of North America; Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); and Asia Pacific.

The company’s simulation solutions are agnostic to computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), and product lifecycle management (PLM) platforms used by industrial customers. This further reduces the huge expenses associated with integration.

"ANSYS serves over 40,000 customers, and its customer base includes some of the largest global industrial companies," noted Imran. "Its worldwide presence through direct and indirect sales channels eases the provision of localized sales and service, positioning it ahead of the rest of the competition."

Frost & Sullivan’s Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for outstanding achievement in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research.
